BGT spoilers: Choir set up by former act pay emotional tribute to war heroes

Not a dry eye in the house

Judges of BGT are impressed this week with a junior choir who sing an original song in memory of war heroes from the past.

In a teaser clip for Saturday’s upcoming show, the D Day Juniors leave Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, speechless.

The war time vocal group was set-up by BGT alumni the D Day Darlings.

Meanwhile, they will sing lyrics including: “Sitting in the classroom learning history of the past. On turning the pages, I can’t believe my eyes.

“Now I know how you saved us, want to shine a light.

“Thank you for everything, everything you’ve done. Pass it on. Pass it on.”

Another chance

On the show, they wear their school uniforms and carry book bags.

It will air one day after VE Day 75th anniversary celebrations.

D Day Darlings got to the Britain’s Got Talent final two years ago, but comedian Lost Voice Guy beat them in the end.

However, they were keen to have another chance with the junior choir.

When will live Britain’s Got Talent shows be back?

This week, judge Amanda Holden revealed that the live shows should return to screens later on this year.

Fans previously doubted it would happen so soon due to coronavirus, and the need for social distancing which made hosting anything in front of a live audience tough.

But she said TV bosses told her to keep ‘early autumn’ free in case the live shows can be resumed then.
